Please read the Special Event Permitting Instructions Page completely before filing a special event permit application.

Special Event Application

Please note the following:

  • Your event is not approved until you complete the entire permitting process.
  • The City will not be responsible for printed/promotional items if dates, locations, or other requested services are denied or amended during the permit process.
  • The deadline for submitting a Special Event Permit Application is 30 days prior to your event, but we strongly recommend applying as early as possible.
  • The earliest you may apply is 364 days prior to the date you request.
  • A Special Event Permit is for events using Salt Lake City public property (parks, plazas, sidewalks, roads, etc.).
  • If you are seeking local consent for a DABC permit, then you must obtain that through Salt Lake City Business Licensing.
